Buffalo author talks African history at charter school

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)– On a quest to learn more about his history, 35-year-old Emmanuel Kulu from Buffalo got an unexpected surprise when he learned he was a descendant of an African king.

“About five years ago I started writing about Shaka Zulu who is my great ancestor,” Kulu said.

From that discovery, Kulu started writing his book “I Black Pharoh “ in hopes to share a positive image of African culture with the world.

“It creates a sense of pride in African-Americans. When the only thing you can connect African-Americans to in this country is slavery, it doesn’t do them justice,” Kulu said.

Now a published author, Kulu is sharing his story with the next generation. He recently spoke with students at Tapestry Charter School about writing, and the history of ancient Africa.
